A late Victorian pub it may be, but this one is starting to look a little frayed around the edges. The bar staff are pleasant and efficient but there's not that great a range of choices on offer and the overall this pub still needs some TLC. Fingers crossed it gets it, as this little one-roomed boozer has a degree of old school charm to go with the lovely interior (though the insertion of an electric fire in the old fireplace was an interesting choice). We came here on a Sunday just after opening time (12:00) and found that the inappropriately loud R&B music was far from necessary and the gents toilets hadn't been cleaned. Not a great start. However, being slightly grubby doesn't stop it being a popular place with the denizens of Soho, and you still get a few characters in, rubbing shoulders with lost tourists. At the moment though, it's a pub that doesn't completely win us over.
